I was at my gym the other day and saw a sign posted: “Mon/Wed/Thurs 5:30 spin classes CANCELLED until further notice.” I asked what happened. The regular instructor hurt her back and no subs could be found. (Summer can be like that, I guess.) An idea hatched in my feverish post-partum brain.
That night I checked with my better half – yep, he could come home early and mind Kate one day per week. So it’s official – I’ll be teaching a 50 minute spin on Wednesdays at 5:30 p.m. for a month or so, until the regular instructor is well enough to resume teaching.
I’m ridiculously excited. On the bike again! And in the interim, my gym got a fancy new sound system and mike for the spin room. Sweet. But I’m also apprehensive. I haven’t done a spin class since two weeks before I delivered Kate and haven’t taught one in 4 months. How much sucking wind and wheezing am I going to do?
Thank goodness, I have your playlists to choose from, since having Kate makes it difficult to create more. She’s not on a regular nap schedule yet (i.e. who knows when – or if – she’s going to sleep during the day.)
Wish me luck!
